Garth Brooks Gets Called “Big Freaking Liberal Socialist” Because He Wore a Barry Sanders Jersey In Detroit

This is peak social media in 2020.

I know many of you already know this, but some don’t, so I’ll quickly explain. Garth Brooks’ social media comments have been hijacked by fans of hilarious comedians Tom Segura and and his wife Christina Pazsitzky.

Scroll through any Instagram post, and you’ll see very quickly what I’m referring to…

Now, onto this weekend.

Garth was playing at Ford Field in Detroit. There’s only one jersey to wear in this case – the great Barry Sanders (Barry and g both went to Oklahoma Stae, he’s an NFL Hall of Famer, one of the best RBs to ever do it, the greatest Lion of all time, etc, etc). Of course g did just that, and posted a photo on Instagram.

It’s the amount of middle-aged folks thinking Garth was supporting Bernie Sanders that had me laughing my ass off. Some of the comments were sarcastic, but many were clearly serious, including the one below…

The comments section on any Garth post can literally turn your day around in a nanosecond. Absolutely electric stuff and always fucking hilarious. Thank you internet for never disappointing us.

What a time to be alive.

Update: here’s some more comments people left and a viral tweet after we broke the story. These people are not smart…

“Detroit
You carried me all night long
But you always have
I’m in love with you! love, g #GARTHinDETROIT”
